It was not until I was in the high country of the Sierra Nevada in eastern Yosemite that I learned to be quiet, and to slow down. Here my ears opened, my eyes relaxed, and both my gait and breath changed.

Indeed, as John Muir wrote, “the clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness”.
